TORONTO DANCE FESTIVAL

Today I taught just over 150 highschool teenagers a hip hop workshop to celebrate TORONTO DANCE FESTIVAL. The energy and excitement from everyone was absolutely incredible!

From working in the industry for so long, there are many times when I simply forget even why I started on this journey. The joy and excitment fades and the dance itself starts to lose it's true essence. But to be in the presence of these kids who were so willing to learn and engage was like a refreshing drink I've been salivating for for so long.

As we slided, grooved, popped, rolled, and bounced, the energy flew from one person to the next. The vibrations from the room hit it's peak and as I flung my video camera around to capture the moment, I realized looking through the lense just how much power dance really has.

I smiled and thought "Now THIS is why I embarked on this journey. THIS IS IT."

THANK you to everyone that attended and I'm sure I'll be seeing more of you in the future. (Now go practice hitting those moves!!!)
